Librivox recording of Jewish Children (Yudishe Kinder) by Sholem Aleichem. Translated by Hannah Berman
Read by Adrian Praetzellis.

Although written from a child's perspective, this is not a kids book but a series of funny, poignant, and sometimes disturbing stories about life in a late 19th-century Russian-Jewish village -- the world of my grandparents. Sholem Rabinovich (1859-1916) was born in Pereiaslav, Ukraine and later immigrated to New York. His short stories about Tevye and his daughters were freely adapted into the musical FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. Rabinovich's will contained the following injunction: "Let my name be recalled with laughter or not at all." His translator, Hannah Berman, was Irish of Lithuanian descent.

Some of these stories may be too intense for younger children. (summary by Adrian Praetzellis)

Outstanding reading of these first person tales of an eastern European Jewish village. Funny, poignant, sometimes disturbing, and exceedingly atmospheric. Thank you librivox.org! (The BookWorm, Manchester, UK)
